With the thermal pads, and two large EMI shields removed from the top of the PCB, we can see several of the 2nd generation Apple TV's main chips. The small EMI shield that covers the wireless chips appeared to be soldered to the small circuit board on which the chips were mounted. As I don't to damage any of the internal components, I'm going to leave the shield in place.
